    Everyone loves.....Marine land!

    We may be moving in the next year, and they have a college in the next town that offers French courses. I am thinking that is how I will spend our years there, so that when we move, I am pretty much guaranteed a job

    I did Indonesian at school for about 4 years and then I started French but it was at an accelerated pace with a full class load so I had to give it up (most people who took it dropped a class).

    If my son wanted to learn a language hge could do whatever he chose. If we still live here when he gets to the appropriate grade at school where they start LOTe he will have no choice as Italian is the only language offered and is compulsory. Our town has a large Italian community

    Spanish is the most useful around here, for sure. T is currently doing a Spanish program 1 day a week, and I just found out that his Elementary School also offers Spanish from K forward, so we will continue with that. Count me as another one whose father is bilingual, but he never spoke a lot of Spanish at home (I guess because my mom doesn't speak it.) I can understand and speak some conversational Spanish from my dad, but I get tripped up on weird random words, like "apple" (that happened just yesterday.)

    I used to work with this girl who speaks (besides English, obv) Greek, Spanish, French, Mandarin - all fluently - and could also 'get by' in Russian. Crazy.

    I just want you to know I was haunted by the Marineland song all weekend, pretty much up until I watched the Oscars.

    Anyway, the more languages, the better. I am jealous of all of those who speak more than one.

    I am not visiting this thread anymore. Damn you guys and your Marineland jingle. I keep thinking about that poor Shamu.
